Vintage with Flair!…

Feathering My Nest has moved!... come check all of this out over at www.featheringmynest.ca/blog

A giant THANK YOU! to everyone who came out on Saturday... it was a great positive day… a little ray of sunshine in an otherwise grey sad weekend… 

Here is a recap of the sale!… 

Booth setup began on Thursday afternoon just before announcements started coming out about evacuations around parts of Calgary… it rained off and on down in Priddis… 
Check out my 709 Derby Girls T-Shirt!… just representing the girls back home is all!… 

Luckily I had rented a uhaul to bring all of my items down to the location!… I didn't REALLY realize how many items I had until we filled the uhaul AND our truck!…

A few weeks back I rustled up some vintage acme dingo daisy cowboy boots to go with the cream lace dress I picked up to wear at the sale… yeah… I matched my booth… 

The sale Friday evening was postponed...
Saturday we opened at 10 and it was steady until 3:30… and finished up at 4!… the day just disappeared!… I didn't stop all day!… 

I had a lot of positive feedback about my setup, items and pricing!… it was very encouraging…

As the sale started a little later than originally planned on Saturday I had an opportunity to breath… and to take some detail shots of things around my booth… some shots for the webpage that I have in the works… 

It was hard to part with the things I sold!… I really loved everything… luckily I know where a few of my favourite items have ended up so I will get to see them once in awhile ;)

I even have a few follow up clients that have been in touch since Saturday!… :)  I've got some exciting projects in the pipes so stay tuned for those!…

…burlap and doily pillow detail… 

…book page wreath - made with nothing but trashy romance novels… get in close and read something steamy!… hehehe

The doily bowls were not as popular as I thought they would be…  they're such pretty things to look at though!… 

…cigar boxes from Montana...

…shapely legs… 

…more legs!… 

…my favourite planter!…

…tea trolly hand painted tray… 

…my petite sweet dresser…

When all was said and done at the end of the day I had one the Best Overall Booth prize!  *squee!* 
A night stay at the Chimney Rock Bed and Breakfast!… 

Takedown was quick and pack up was even quicker… partly because my Pickle packed up the truck and partly because the items that were left fit in just the truck!… We were back home from the venue in no time!… 

…the sun was out to celebrate!… 

POP!… here's to many more successes!…


Party Time!


  1. How exciting to win the prize, have fun and sell a lot of your stuff. I would love to see your booth in person, but Calgary is a bit far from southern California.

  2. I am so happy I met you! I can't wait to see what you have in store. Your shop was awesome and the prices were too. I am still wishing I brought that dresser and salt box planter home. KICKING myself, but oh well. Can't wait to see you again, I got plans for us!


  3. It was so exciting to meet you! I just commented and it got eaten, so if this is doubled I am sorry. I am still kicking myself for not getting the dresser and the salt box planter. There were so many awesome things here, and your right, the prices were great too. Can't wait to meet you again,


  4. Art and Sand - it was so exciting!

  5. Brooklyn - it was awesome to meet you too! Just fired you an email - we have to get together soon for sure! :)
